Spring Valley man pleads guilty to drug and drunk driving charges in Mower County District Court

A Spring Valley man is pleading guilty to drug and drunk driving charges in Mower County District Court.  

The Mower County Sheriff’s Office reported that a deputy pulled over 36-year old Jeremy John Volkart on July 21 for speeding on County Road 1. The arresting deputy stated that Volkart did not have a valid driver’s license and showed constricted pupils and twitching hands.

Court documents state that after Volkart failed several field sobriety tests, a search of his vehicle turned up 37 unidentified white pills, more than 100 small plastic baggies, .7 grams of marijuana, 49.8 grams of methamphetamine, a scale, and two drug pipes. Investigators stated that one of the pipes held 20.4 grams of a liquid that tested positive for meth.

Volkart pleaded guilty Friday to charges of 2nd degree drug possession and 3rd degree DWI. His sentencing in Mower County District Court is scheduled for November 6.
